Latasha Lee needs to get away from you — and it’s definitely your loss. In her song “Get Away,” the R&B artist from vamps for the camera with a gorgeous kiss-off that plays like an homage to Motown.
After a brief black-and-white close-up of her approaching an old-school condenser-style microphone, the video for “Get Away” cuts to a bold straight-away shot of her caressing the mike, singing goodbye to someone who evidently carries a lot of bad baggage. Her hair evokes Ronnie Spector, but her voice is all Latasha.
If “Get Away” makes you think of the Supremes, that’s probably the intent — according to her biography, she entertained her family with a rendition of “Stop in the Name of Love” at the tender age of 3.
